Why are Heads Up Regs Limping on the Button

Recently I've switched game types to Heads Up and have noticed that a lot of the regulars are limping more often from the button than they are raising. I've seen it so much that I know there is a fundamental reason behind this. I just haven't been able to wrap my head around why anyone would let their opponent see a free flop.

Re: Why are Heads Up Regs Limping on the Button

are you just assuming they are winning players? vast majority of poker players are losing, that also includes those who play regularly

limping is fine (even necessary) in short stack situations, but there isn't really much merit in doing it with 100b+ stacks, I know exactly 1 winning player who does it (rec313, who is probably a bot). Please make sure that you're not in the wrong forum, this is for hu cash, not husng.

limping deep just makes your preflop strategy waaay more complicated, without providing large enough benefits

I always wondered about that rec313 guy on stars, his style is really strange (seems bad) but figured it was probably some type of bot that's somehow doing ok in the games given they have been around a while

Heyyy sorry about that! I'm a forum noob, so sorry about posting in the wrong thread.

I think your right I was giving too much credit to these cats, but I also wanted to double check to make sure I haven't missed any limping trends in the Heads-Up world haven't really grinded any Heads up in years so I was just making sure that this was just a sign of a loser or if there was a strategic reason for this

Thanks!

Great post. I agree about rec313, or at least was highly suspicious.

Some hands are too weak too raise but too strong to fold
so they usually L/C or L/F with a big part of the range

Great plan!
Not exploitable at all ...

Might as well just tell your opponent your hand sucks and he should raise big.

Is that because that's how much rent costs where you live?

Who's hating? You want to talk **** but won't say what you play. Ya I'm not playing high but the site options I have are crap and you probably couldn't beat the regs on $25nl there. You're likely a pure bum hunter anyways.

Prove me wrong.

Re: Why are Heads Up Regs Limping on the Button

prove you wrong? just open my pgc thread have answers for all Q's. You got a big mouth for some 25nl choad. I'd challenge you HU4rollz but problem is its been 7 years since you started play poker and your still at 25nl, only god knows how long its gonna be until you can play a stake where we won't get raked to death.

Look, im willing to help you bro, just PM me for coaching we can sort something out im sure...ill give you one of those deals like you pay up front in bulk and ill give you a discount...hows $1000 for 5 hours sound buddy?
